Diamond Horseshoe in the Paramount Hotel

235 W 46th St.
New York, New York 10036
From 1938 to 1951, Billy Rose’s Diamond Horseshoe operated in the basement of the Paramount. Known for its vaudeville-style revues, the club featured the day’s top entertainers and even inspired a 1940s movie musical. Seventy-five years after the club first opened and following a $20 million renovation, the Diamond Horseshoe is a prime midtown nightlife destination and venue for environmental theatrical experiences, events, and other unique programming overseen by Variety Worldwide LLC and LDV Hospitality. The 6000 square foot ballroom features two bars, a brand new kitchen, banquet style tables, and various private rooms. The 6,000-square-foot space brims with Old World splendor and avant-garde accents. In the main ballroom, beneath a fiber-optic starry sky, plush banquettes curl up against mirrored walls, while behind the bar, urn-size glass beakers fizzle with mysterious potions. From there guests venture into the series of rooms, which Little refers to as “the Bergdorf Goodman fun house,” and also is now the home of the renowned, QUEEN OF THE NIGHT experience.
